May Luvs

Hi everyone!

So, it’s that time again! These are always my favourite posts to read and write about!

 1. Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

I picked up this duo on a midnight Shoppers run at the end of April and I’ll admit, I didn’t have very high hopes for it once I read the ingredients list, but Kathryn from Provincial Beauty had a very positive review of the Marc Anthony line which encouraged me to give it a try and I’m so glad I did! I noticed that when I let my hair air dry, it was actually a bit dry to the touch and just not soft at all! When I started blow-drying my hair, that’s when I noticed the turn around! My hair became so silky and soft! I’m not sure if this is a heat-activated shampoo and conditioner, but the heat really made a difference!

 2. Pandora’s Makeup Box Eye Shadow in Honey

I raved about this eye shadow in my Pandora review so it’s not a surprise that it’s part of my May Luvs! This is a fantastic every day color and has just a little bit of golden shimmer which I love! I think it’s a colour that will look great on anyone.

3. LUSH Mint Julep Lip Scrub

I use this every day and not only does it leave my lips feeling soft, but it tastes SO GOOD! I love anything peppermint and combining it with chocolate, well I’m in love! I also love how tingly my lips feel afterwards and the fact that I can eat it all up! I’m always extra generous so that I can eat up any “leftovers”!

4. Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss

After finishing this product in Peppermint and loving the fact that it didn’t have any tint to it whatsoever, I decided to try one with just a hint of colour. Peach Kiss is perfect for just that and is a great lip balm to boot! You can see from my swatch that there is just a hint of nude shimmer to it.

5. AG Smooth Argan Flat Iron Firewall Spray

I quite like AG products, especially their shampoo and liquid varnish spray so when they come out with an argan oil-based line a couple of months ago, I was anxious to try it. I bought a travel-sized version of the flat iron spray just to try it out and I loved it! It smells good, is lightweight so I never feel like there’s anything weighing my hair down and leaves my hair so smooth and silky after straightening! I highly recommend this, it’s fantastic!

I can’t wait to see what everyone’s favourites have been for the month! Hope you enjoyed mine! Have a good evening!

  1. That's too funny! I am doing my monthly favs tomorrow and I'm including the Oil Of Morocco shampoo & conditioner! I had the same results as you...when I let my hair air dry (which I usually do) it felt dry but when I used my heat tools on it it felt soft and silky and my hair looked super shiny! Weird & wonderful stuff! Haha! Love the Peach Baby Lips as well! Great favs! :)

    1. And it's not a crazy expensive shampoo line like some other argan oil shampoos (ahem Moroccanoil) which is great!

    1. It seems that the shampoo and conditioner has been a hit for quite a few people so definitely try it out! LOL, I think I've probably eaten more of the scrub than I have using it on my lips!

  9. How interesting that both you and Chelsea had the same results with the marc anthony shampoo and conditioner... I will have to pay more attention and see if I can notice a difference from air drying to blowdrying.. but I am so happy you like it :) I think I may pick up the lip scrub I have been wearing more lipsticks recently which I find can be unforgiving if I have dry flaky lips.. not attractice! haha Love your favourites post hun!

    1. Yes, love the Marc Anthony line! So glad you suggested I try it! Oh I know, lipsticks can be so drying and then towards the end of the day your lips just feel so yuck. The scrub definitely helps. I tend to use it at the end of the day for that reason.
